    Ouwehands Dierenpark has a new guide with Giant panda on the cover. Not sure how long it's been out, but it's different to the one I bought last year and as it mentions pandas, tarsier and cuscus I would say it's fairly recent.

    Two new German zooguides - each being the first published by the collections in question for close to a decade: Zoo Wuppertal and Tierpark Hellabrunn.

    The former was actually released several months ago, but I forgot to post the news here :p and was reminded by the release of the new guide from Munich.

    The Wuppertal guide is curiously poorly-designed: vey dated looking, sadly, with that rather ugly look of the early 1990s.

    New guide for Arnhem - featuring an Anole on the cover - also out, in German and Dutch.

    On my post-Zoohistorica tour, I was pleased to find new guides for sale at Opole, Zlin and Jihlava. To the best of my knowledge, these are all 2017 editions.

    The Jihlava one is most certainly a 2017 edition, as it was released immediately prior to my visit this year :)

    When I was visiting Germany a few weeks ago I found, to my pleasure, that the recently-reopened Aquazoo Dusseldorf has two new zooguides; a children's guidebook and one aimed at adults. Good quality ones too.

    Heheh I did indeed get both :p primarily because I initially only spotted the children's one and took it to be the only one available - certainly wouldn't be the first collection to only do a zooguide aimed at children - and then spotted the adult one immediately after buying the children's one.

    Wrocław Zoo has new guidebook. That same format as previous releases. Angolan colobus on cover. There are two language versions: polish and english. There are some small differences between both issues.

    Halle has a new guidebook it seems - Red Panda on the front cover, and up-to-date enough to include the recently arrived Eastern Aardwolf pair.
